Join ZOOMA Annapolis Women’s Half Marathon
One of a series of several “Zooma” women’s race events across the country — with half marathons also in Cape Cod and Amelia Island — the ZOOMA Annapolis Women’s Half Marathon & 10K sees more than 2,000 runners cross the finish line each year, with just over 1,000 of those runners finishing the event’s half-marathon alone.
Let patriotic pride fuel you on this tour of one of America’s great seaside towns. Starting at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, it’s hard to not feel your heart swell listening to the National Anthem in the excitement-filled moments before the race starts.
After the race, its time to celebrate in the end zone of Navy Stadium at the After-Party Expo with wine, live music, shopping, recovery yoga, and lots of fit girls’ weekend celebration.
Both races share the same starting line, which lies just outside the Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, here on the campus of the United States Naval Academy.
From there, those running the 13.1-mile race follow the course as it winds its way along a brief loop to the north of the stadium and then heads back southward along Farragut Road to Cedar Park Road, and then follows Taylor Avenue and Baltimore Boulevard across the US Naval Academy Bridge over into the town of Arnold, where the bulk of the race route unfolds.
Most of the rest of the race takes runners on a long straightaway stretch between the campuses of the Naval Academy and Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, where runners reach the turnaround and then make their way back along the roads and the tree-lined, thickly forested Baltimore-Annapolis Trail that parallels the Ritchie Highway toward the finish line in Jonas Green Park, overlooking the Severn River flowing by.
